CR Model Summary
Ford says that the move to a nearly all-aluminum body will save at least 700 pounds compared with the previous F-150. We verified that claim when we weighed a press version with the new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 and compared it with previous models we tested. Other notable features include a 360-degree view camera, LED headlights, a remote tailgate release, and integrated loading ramps. In addition to the 2.7-liter V6, Ford will offer a 3.5-liter V6, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, and a 5.0-liter V8. In brief drives we found the 2.7-liter engine plenty strong, while the cabin is comfortable and quiet. Safety features include lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and blind spot detection.
